Introducing Snug

Hi All,

I joined FGRV when we began looking for a lightweight trailer. We were contemplating which FGRV would be the best fit when one of you posted about the Alto. While it is not a FGRV, since I learned about it on this forum, I thought you might enjoy seeing a pic of it.

We picked it up at Can Am RV on July 3rd and camped for two weeks, mostly in Ontario and Vermont. We are thoroughly enjoying it.

Thanks to all who contribute to this site for helping me learn about light-weight trailers and towing!

Leslie

A Honda Odyssey like you, Norm. Ours is a 2006 and we added the transmission and power steering coolers in preparation for towing.

Interior Pics

Here are a couple of interior photos. I'll try to take more soon. The first photo shows the area at the rear which becomes the King-sized bed. The second shows the booth up front that becomes the twin-sized bed. The table (not pictured) can be used in either location.

We got a quote from the local Honda dealer but had it done at the local (non-dealer) Honda specialists that we prefer. Our owner's manual said we needed it for towing, so we got quotes from both and went with the mechanics we trust. Can-Am might have installed it as well, but I didn't think to ask. We did use them for our 7 pin and were very happy with their service.

I'm the one who started the recent Alto thread. Alto Trailer-Not a FGRV, but Wow!

I'm envious, even though I love my Scamp. The Alto is such a beautiful, modern, sleek and sensible trailer. It is very European in style. I love all those windows but I would miss the opportunity to make curtains.

Keep us posted on the pros and cons of owning an Alto.

So far so good Donna. A very severe storm came through when we were in Vermont. We waited it out in a restaurant because we didn't want to be in a trailer with the severe wind and rain. I didn't know what we'd find when we got back to the campground but the Alto was nice and dry.

Did you retract the roof during the storm?

No, we didn't retract the roof. We went out to dinner, leaving the roof up and the Fantastic Fan open. As we were leaving the restaurant and about to head back to the campground I got a notice on my phone about severe weather on the way, with rain and potential winds up to 70 mph. We turned around and went back in the restaurant for dessert and ended up hanging out there for a couple of hours till the storm passed. (The restaurant was a much nicer alternative to the bath house where we probably would have ended up otherwise. I'm from tornado country and don't take severe weather lightly.)

There was plenty of rain and lightening, and though it got windy, thankfully the 70 mph winds did not materialize there. The Fantastic fan closed itself and everything else was in great shape.
